Straight off the back of their ferocious performance at the Download Pilot last Saturday, Lotus Eater have announced a new single featuring Bring Me The Horizon’s Oli Sykes.

The new song, entitled Obliterate, was first debuted at Donington without Sykes. A short snippet can be heard below, before its official release on June 24. Unsurprisingly, it sounds pretty savage. 

In a round-up review of the Download Pilot, Metal Hammer describes Lotus Eater's performance as "like a rabid badger and with breakdowns that sound like someone chucked a woodchipper down a flight of stairs" and "metallic hardcore with an almost supernatural sense for nastiness".

Sykes first made his appreciation of the Glasgow’s gloom metallers clear in 2019 during a set at the All Points East Festival. The vocalist invited Lotus Eater’s Jamie Mclees onstage for a performance of Antivist, and shortly commended them as “a band making heavy music like it should be done.”
